DJANGO, THE GREAT SILENCE and COMPANEROS are three of my favorite SWs and he did good work in the epic genre in the 60s. But what happened to Sergio after 1970? A great director one decade, unrecognizable from Bruno the next two! I saw that thing with Spencer and Ernie. Man, it was depressing! What happened?

Looking forward to BLUE UNDERGROUNDs restored DJANGO and their SW boxed set. Don't know if I can afford it. Better start saving now as it seems a must have for SW fans.

I thought Silence was Sergio Solima? I might be wrong. He was good too. Anyone seen Face To Face?

The Great Silence is definitely a Sergio Corbucci film. Sergio Sollima directed three westerns: The Big Gundown, Face to Face and Run Man Run.

Very recently, I saw DJANGO out at Best Buy.

I haven't seen it. Do you recommend me checking it out sometime? I don't know about buying it just yet, I'd want to watch it first most likely.

I've been thinking of getting that dvd myself (A Professional Gun). The quality is terrible I hear. Like a very poor vhs release. But I haven't seen the film, and this is better than nothing.

I recommend you don't by Django, its not anything close to Leone.

If you like your badly dubbed westerns in comic book form with 50's TV western style theme music, have at it.

The Django character is cool though, but the rest as a whole is just terrible.

View it for historical purposes, and thank the genius of Leone for making magic and immortality out of essentially the same lump of clay.

A professional gun DVD is incredibly sought after. I saw it on ebay once, the bidding went over 20. I don't think it's ever been released on video either.
